Without a doubt, it was when I decided to quit my job, aged 21, and go backpacking around Australia. Having lived in the same little village in Buckinghamshire (in the UK) all my life, I was pretty green and inexperienced, in all aspects of life. The experiences helped me to grow up and that led to the journey I have had to get back to Australia – via Scotland, England (again) and New Zealand. I often reflect on how different my life could’ve been and am grateful that I never felt satisfied with my lot at a young age. I know I’m where I should be in the world, Melbourne.
